Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Alexandra Rose Day.

 

Miss Gabrielle Ray, one of our most beautiful queens of musical comedy, and the star attraction at Boscombe Hippodrome this week has generously consented to assist in the special effort being made in Bournemouth tomorrow on behalf of Alexandra Rose Day. Miss Ray will sell roses both at Branksome Towers Hotel and at Westbourne Arcade.

Although we have reached practically the eleventh hour, there is still need for an additional number of ladies to act as collectors, and the Committee will be grateful for any offer made even at the last moment.

Gabrielle Ray – Boscombe Hippodrome – Bournemouth Graphic – Friday 11th June 1920

Boscombe Hippodrome.

 

The last word in dainty artistry is to be seen at Boscombe Hippodrome this week where Miss Gabriel Ray, the famous beautiful London musical comedy star, is the principal figure in a series of most delightful scenes.

In costumes, in settings, in general scenic effects and in song and dance, the lover of the artistic is made spellbound by the exquisite harmony that prevails. Assisted by Mr. Leslie Barker, Miss Ray first submits a delightful offering, “ Pierrot and Pierrette,”  which is succeeded by a charming early Victorian scene, in which she is assisted by eight little maidens, all attired in costumes of that period, the whole making a most beautiful colour scheme. “Jack o’ Jingles” is the final act presented by Miss Ray, in which her powers of fascination are equally irresistible.

A strong variety bill supports the “star” attraction. Takio gives wonderful imitations of sounds of wild animals, birds, etc., in conjunction with his interesting film introducing the various animals dealt with.

The Werds Bros. area pair of comedy acrobats who introduce a number of sensational falls with a running show of pantomime. Dusty Rhodes is a man of comedy with an operatic voice, Ernie Ream in story and song is decidedly popular with his “Baby Grand,” and Adams and Lee open the programme with a skilful display of juggling.
